Will I be able to keep the seats on LHR-HKG? And if so, can I expect to get a refund of the different in miles (25,000 miles)? Of course, all this assuming that I pay the $100 re-issue fee...

Thank you in advance, and I appreciate all your help!!
Why not just redeem LHR-HKG online if it's available? Then you can redeem a simple HKG-TPE afterwards.

It's no longer available at standard pricing apparently, and I'm trying to keep it at 100,000 miles, with LHR-HKG and a "free" tag-on to TPE.

Booking LHR-HKG online would cost 150,000 and an additional 25,000 for the TPE leg. Nearly twice the price for a set of flights that are supposedly available at 100,000 miles.

Before I attempt to use the horrible Asia Miles interface to search myself, does anyone who have already looked know if there are any F seats available to Europe at any date next summer?

she was insistent that only Choice awards are available.

I might try to call them back to see if she made a mistake.
Check online again and then HUACA again

Several weeks ago, I saw wide availability for MXP in the first two weeks of August 2019. I didn't check LHR/CDG/FRA though.

Thanks @percysmith! I'll do that ASAP.

In case that doesn't work, do you suppose the rerouting option is something that is doable?

I'm not sure you'd get the seats on reissue if you cannot get the seats on first issue.

Sorry, I only did do this online and it showed me options. When I try again now, it insists to go to the dreaded request form.

Availability probably gone? It's Friday, Patricia likes withdrawing seats over the weekend. Wait til Tuesday.

Probably, I checked for CE, not for myself

You seem to have internal CX knowledge, including the most popular girl in the company. That's good news.

Withdrawing availability might be to avoid costly mistakes with "special offers".

I doubt availability will get any better considering July & August are peak travel months. At least based on my multiple experiences booking QR in J for the same route and timings as what you're looking for, availability is scare already in Oct & Nov and pretty much disappears from Dec. I make my bookings in Oct to make sure I get something, but I still need to be quite flexible with my dates.

Does anyone know if I can issue a ticket using my spouse's miles? I have a ticket on hold under my AM account and am ready to issue soon, but would like to use my spouse's miles to issue it instead. Thanks!
